a structural budget deficit in the city, so we need to deal, of course, with the short-term balancing our budget in a way that does not decimate city services that people rely on, but also to address our long- term structural budget deficit, and that means implementing some budget reforms. smooth out our budget process so it is not a boom/bust kind of budget. reforming our pension system and retiree health care system so that they are stable. we do a decent job providing low-income housing. we do a terrible job providing housing for low or middle class and middle-class people, people who are working and paying taxes that we need to have here for a functioning economy, so i am looking for ways to try to fund that, particularly for essential employees like teachers, nurses, first responders. projects coming up in the city like the renovation of dolores park, which is a once in 50 years opportunity to define what the park is and what changes we want to make to it. that will be a very significant projects.

, and that deficit can compound itself over time. and finally, rising inequality and declining mobility are bad for our democracy. ordinary folks can't write massive campaign checks or hire high- priced lobbyists and lawyers to secure policies that tilt the playing field in their favor at everyone else's expense. and so people get the bad taste that the system is rigged, and that increases cynicism and polarization, and it decreases the political participation that is a requisite part of our system of self-government. so this is an issue that we have to tackle head on. and if, in fact, the majority of americans agree that our number- one priority is to restore opportunity and broad-based growth for all americans, the question is, why has washington consistently failed to act? and i think a big reason is the myths that have developed around the issue of inequality. first, there is the myth that this is a problem restricted to a small share of predominantly minority poor -- that this isn't a broad-based problem, this is a black problem or a hispanic problem or a native american problem. now, it's

. in the long run, what we save shows up as higher paychecks for workers and lower deficits for the government. indeed, the cbo estimates in the second decade, once the aca is in effect it will shave 0.5% gdp off the deficit every year. that's about $80 billion each year in today's economy. the new york times reports this morning that the cost of the aca is headed in the other direction. economic benefits are going up and costs are going down. how do we implement all these benefits to make sure it translates into better care for every american? a lot of the benefits are in place, as i said, americans had been benefiting since 2010 but what we have to do is keep spreading the word so americans know these options are available to them. for americans without insurance, we are working to help get them covered and this is where much of the attention has been since october 1. the new health insurance marketplace will help insure millions of hard-working americans find affordable health care. in states where they are working to make this law work for more of their federal citizens, people are signing
